I have just taken some pier pictures and this has given me some ideas! Cracking treatment Dave
Dave Carrington: Glad you like it, Bill!
Wow! Am I glad to be back! (:o)
Dave Carrington: Hey, Ros! Glad you're back, girl! smile
Fascinating treatment, Dave - tell us how you did it!
Dave Carrington: Hi, Tom. The original shot was taken with a polarizer, converted to B/W with channel mixer, & then curve adjustments for contrast. Maybe also a little smart sharpen also, but that's it! smile

A bit empty David, an early day perhaps? I do like the processing for this.
Dave Carrington: Hi, Les! I like empty space, personally: I see everything in front of me without clutter. This wouldn't have been possible 20/ 30/ 40 years ago: this pier would have been full of people...

Perhaps it'e time people came back to enjoy these places?
I really like the effect of a polarizer seen in b&w, the left looks a tadger higher than the rightwink
Dave Carrington: Polarizers are dead handy, Nig! smile As for the orientation, it's probably my dodgy eysight: I should use me specs!!

Hey Dave, I think your work is amazing. This fab picture is now my PC wallpaper & when I switch my computer on it makes me smile!!! Where is the pier please? I wish you well mate.
Dave Carrington: Hi, Martin. Glad you like the shot! smile It was taken on Blackpool's North Pier last Summer.
